10) Karate Training with Akamine Sensei - Okinawa 2019

Saturday 9/28/2019:
Performance day! The kids did great, smoothly running through their enbu so quickly I was glad I was at the ready with several cameras to capture it. There was a full roster of performances, mostly dance, and throughout the evening various dances with the Shiisa (Shiishii-mai), where a karateka with a bo danced around and "fought" with the Shiisa). The design of the Matsumura Seito Hozon Kai patch is based on the Haebaru/Miyahira Shisa, a brown lion with the kanji for King on its forehead.
